Description

Whether you are constructing your dream home or making small-scale renovations, sustainable approaches to building are now more important and more achievable than ever. In 'Sticks, Stones, Mud Homes', author and photographer Nigel Noyes shows how good design and eco-friendly building principles can reduce our impact on the earth - and how real, lived-in houses developed with integrity have a lasting connection to the land. Beautifully captured in full-colour photographs, these houses have been created by using traditional materials and techniques in unconventional ways - rammed earth, baled straw and mud bricks, recycled timber, stone and tin, and salvaged or inexpensive contemporary materials all contribute to the making of these stunning homes. They have been designed to conserve energy, to create new life from old, and to employ recycling practices that benefit the environment. Both inspirational and practical, 'Sticks, Stones, Mud Homes' will help you find natural ways to create your perfect living space. From rustic charm to sleek modern lines, these homes prove that using sustainable building techniques can be economical and comfortable, as well as stylish. Make your home good for you and for the environment too.
